page a day challenge

Courts, Ghetto T and I
are always looking for creative new ways
to challenge and inspire each other.
Last week Tara link us to an amazing blog "Grace is Overrated"

Christie the artist behind the blog has been creating some
fabulous "just fill me in" style journal pages,
for me these are the perfect way to MAKE me journal,
when i am not feeling overly creative or inspired.

Designed to take only a few minutes a day to complete
they aim to capture tip of the tongue moments of your life.

The KMS Diva's have decided to make April
"Page-a-Day" month
we are going to kick off our challenge on
April First.

Pop on over to "Grace is Overrated"
print off your sheets and join us!

I have already started preparing.
I purchased some deliciously creamy water colour paper
and have spent the morning
printing off my work sheets.

Lola's Friday Favorite

Coz it has been one of those weeks.

{recycled journal}

Miss C planted the seed in my brain, of making art journals from all kinds of random things. Last night I went to bed with my mind a buzz, and this morning I put it all together. Take 1 pair of old jeans, some card stock, some cotton and as many knick knacks as you can get your grubby hands on. Smoosh it altogether, and here is what you get.

29 is the new black

29 in my humble opinion is the new black.

I celebrated this week with my family and friends.

I indulged in Chocolate Cake (14 parts chocolate to 1 part flour)
made especially for me by Miss Felix
and was unable to wipe the smile from my face
when a delightful bunch of Lilies arrived at work,
with a special little note saying
"Lilies for Lilli's Mum, Happy Birthday Sweetheart, Love Fi"

my mail box was also brimming with awesome from my
"Armi Girls"
handbound books with handmade paper, carved rocks, cross stiches oh the JOY!!!

I am feeling good about 29
It's gonna be a good year !

{favourite things friday}

It's been awhile, since I have posted here at KMS. I do apologise for neglecting you all. Sadly my art has also been getting neglected. So here is my Friday Favourite: A table covered in art supplies, and fingers covered in paint. xxx

Friday Favorite - Lola

Seat @ Lazybones Emporium, Bangalow.
What more is there to say..........

love letters

This little valentine is not so much for a lover but for a friend,
someone that makes my life richer just by being in it.
After all; isn't that what love is all about ?

love Lola

Love is in the Air

The girls and I here at KMS are all loved up, with the beautiful Valentines day creeping up behind us with a thudding heart and a stolen kiss we are getting into the spirit of things with a Love theme for the week. Prepare for some lovey dovey romantic works of art.
From mixed media to a little scrapbooking to some cardmaking, we will set the sky alight with the feeling of love.
Hold our hand and nuzzle in as we woo you with our works.

Love the ever hopeless romantic

Stay with me under the waves

Stay with me under the waves - mixed media journal page

i have always been mesmerized with the underwater world.

what is it that lurks below the shimmering blue green surface?

in my dreams, it's mermaids

mythical and magical

swirling and twirling

and saving lost sailors from the depths of the deep dark sea.

Stay with me.... detail.

Meet me under the ocean in your dreams.

{mermaid dreams}

The story goes, that the goddess Atargatis, who was the mother of a queen, was in love with a mortal shepherd but accidentally killed him. After this, and filled with shame, she threw herself into a lake and tried to take the form of a fish, but the waters refused to conceal her divine beauty. Thereafter she lived as a mermaid - human above the waist, fish below.
